    MC's drama is just the same today, yesterday and tomorrow.

    An example, the 7pm show, "Xin Hua", if I change the title to "Tong Xin Yuan" you cannot tell the differences too....The concept / scripting is over use already.

    Photography, of course.

    There is so much to read about. Lighting, Post process, composition, creative photog & style.
    But I like documentary from Okto.

    Then she fell in love with Gu Tua (YueNiang's half angmo son) acted by Mark Lee, and the story goes round and round ........

    Btw, all these young 肉棕 were acted by Fiona and the old 肉棕 was acted by Chen Li Ping
    hahahaha, Mark Lee cast as half ang moh?

    Some years back, the trend was towards stories about major diseases. So many back to back ones.

    Characters on Ch 8 are always so predictable and one-dimensional. Sigh. But I gotta say I did like the first few SBC ones, save for the dubbing. At least now they use the actors' real voices. Mostly.

    I thought the old SBC, TCS dramas were better.

    I miss the old tele-movies. Heavenly Ghost anyone? Zhong Kui! Xiao Ao Jiang Hu.

    Why they stop the formula of period dramas?

    Little Nonya was abit historically inaccurate for my liking and, like everyone says here. Storyline = predictable. I'd rather switch to celestial movies and watch the old Shaw movies. At least they are willing to make a unhappy ending.

    I also like Okto documentaries.

    The Wednesday one by Sir David Attenborough was good.

    Ch8 is.......? & nowadays they keep replaying the old shows which cast the late MC king.

    No wonder, now the uncles are saying that the show is so flat ......
    Why want to cast her in sarong kebaya? Should cast her in a diving show, like Jessica Alba, Into The Blue, better!

    I had given up hope on all locally produced dramas, english or chinese. Total crap. Yes, characters all same-same... storyline confirm chop have a few elements like jealousy, love triangle, etc...

    What happened to those mystery shows like Beyond Axis of Truth and Angel's Dreams (or was it Angels Wings) from early 2000s?

    Now cast in hunks and babes just for their looks? Except for the older generation actors and some exceptions... Some "actors" and actresses" could hardly act. Almost like there's a piece of paper floating in front of them and they're just reading it out.

    yes yes so that she might have an increased probability of drowning and then I'll have one less weird looking ugly to look at.

    chicken fight!

    Now suddenly I see Peranakan Buffer sprouting all over town. Went back to Malacca recently and the place was packed with Singaporean cars. Must be because of this Little Nyonya thinggy

    Small little gossip.

    Last night arrived at Changi from Hong Kong. Saw Jannett Ow, the main actress in Little Nonya with a girlfriend. saw her left the Customs after getting her luggage. Petite size girl. Really sweet looking. Then i realised that Tay Ping Hui is beside me waiting for luggage to be out.
    Do you think what i am thinking?
